Style Packages:
[*]Full Package- Includes the full style
[*]Lite Package- Includes the style without large background images
[*]Separate Background Package- Original backgrounds available for Lite Package downloaders

Style Extras:
[*]PSD File(s) for logos
[*]-* Rotating Logo Option (In Development)
[*]-* Vista Top Menu (Similar to Strike Style - In Development)
[*]Vista Feel
[*]Vista Icons
[*]Custom Imageset
[*]Transparency/Opacity
[*]Hover/Highlight Effects
[*]Rotating Vista Wallpapers

[*]Coding to make sure your forum loads very quickly before the backgrounds even begin. This ensures your visitors gain access to your board rapidly without having to wait for images.

[*]Style down loaders need only place extra images in /images/bg/ folder to use as vista wallpaper backgrounds. The code will automatically begin to include your new images in the rotation without any need for edits.

Note: Style has much more extras, and even more in development. I will update the list as development proceeds.

You need to make your dev board allow guests to view different styles via URL...

I just got through doing two custom client styles, and I'm finishing off the next free release skin "Invader"

I will be done with it by tonight, then I will finish up Vista, it should also be finished tonight but we'll see.

I've been getting tons of requests, is it possible I'm in demand? lol :ugeek:

Not really, I have a over-full-time job offline, so it's difficult to get more than a few hours a day. If I could sell some stuff I could quit my job and spend more time here... that's my goal anyway lol

I did have one woman ask me to be partners in developing and styling entire websites then reselling them as turnkey websites, but I don't know about that yet...

I need to get a job myself. I'm going to college next year so I won't be relying on my parents to pay the gas bill. Just this week it costed 55 bucks to fill up my truck. :cry:
As far as which job to chose. Although it might be more fun to style and sell, it's all about the income in the end. It's a shame the world revolves around money.
Anyways back on topic, keep up the good work! Also, the background loads a little slow (and I have 5M pipeline!) so that might create and issue. Especially if it is running on a slow server like my site runs on (can't afford a paid host :lol:) Or is your server just running a bit slow? Maybe bandwidth allocation (your /dev get's less juice than your root so that your main site runs more smoothly...)

EDIT:

Probably won't be anything to worry about, it doesn't load that slow, just has a slight pause.

No, you're right, those images are high quality vista backgrounds, their filesize is huge, so until they all get cached (and even then) it will run slow

They are just place holders for the images the user wants to put in
